No. 112, Jun 06

A lively and colourful collection of hat patterns, inspired from around the world. It includes simple shapes like berets, cloches and pill boxes, through cowboy hats which are felted and shaped on a hat form, to zany creations such as the four winds hat, with four separate points, or the samurai kabuto based on a samurai warrior's helmet. the gondolier's boater is made from around 50 feet (16m) of I-cord, which is then coiled around a hat form; the Yoruba bird has a knitted stuffed bird perched on the top of the hat. Even if you don't want to make a hat, this is a fun book to browse through. A separate section gives instructions on how to measure a head to ensure your hat will fit well, and how to make a block for shaping hats.

No. 82, 2006

This book has 32 different knitting patterns for hats from around the world, from North America right round to Asia, ranging from the simple to the more advanced. There is an introduction to hat basics, including an illustration of different types of hats and an indication of how to correctly measure head circumference, as well as a guide to the stitch techniques you'll need to know, allowing you to create some very original hats for winter. Really excellent design adaptation.
